Where are they now ?

Recommended Posts

Had a discussion a couple of weeks back with a fellow bud about former players and what happened after they left saints. Initially it was about Mehmet , then we got talking about Steve McGarry & others.

Its relatively easy to keep tabs on what ex-saints are doing when they are still involved in football , even if it is through Wiki in most cases. But it got me wondering about other former Buds....Whats Shuggie Murray up to these days, What about Derek Hamilton ? Has Frank McDougall still got his pub ?  Wheres Lexi ?

You know the sort of stuff , anyone got any gen on former players & what they are doing now.?

As far as close season topics go , surely it has to be a better use of our time than white dug shite and coconut dug jokes !?! :rolleyes:

I think Shuggy is working with a gas firm;  Junior is a sports scientist at Partick Thistle;  Frank Mcgarvey is a joiner; Lex Baillie, Mark Fulton, Derek Scrimgeour all polis, Burton O'Brien running a sports management agency type thing.

I need more ex players to stalk :rolleyes:

Dan McGarry has been dead  for some thirty plus years.  Latterly he was a keen bowler and after losing his wife became lonely and as age took hold somewhat wandered on occasion.  He ended up in an old folks home in Uplawmoor but was always using that jinky footwork to escape, walk the fairly substantial distance to the village of Howwood and enjoy a drink.  In an effort to curb this gentleman enjoying his freedom staff would regularly confiscate his shoes.  On many an occasion I saw oor Danny in the pub in his stocking feet "they'll no stop me" he would say.  A better player you will not see.

Ludovic Roy is a Personal Trainer and I heard recently is looking to open up a gym in and around Glasgow somewhere

He was at the place in Kilbarchan which is a sort of lifestyle and fitness place. Has it closed?  Tommy Turner had or was running a pub in Johnstone a couple of years ago, perhaps that why he lives above it.. Derek Hamilton sadly had a problem which I hope he's managed to conquer.  Donny McDowell was in the IT game last working for a firm in the science park but as he's ages with me I hope he's got his feet up now.

Ludo's place in Kilbarchan may still be on the go, I was golfing with a guy (who used to be his agent) who was talking about the place in and around Glasgow..............it may even be the same place and he just thinks Kilbarchan is in and around Glasgow!!
